The ever-so-gorgeous actress, Deepika Padukone is one of the biggest stars in the Indian film industry for some years now. The actress made her acting debut in Bollywood back in the year 2006, when she shared the big screen with Shah Rukh Khan in Farah Khan’s directorial, Om Shanti Om. Since then, she has been a part of many memorable films.
From her exceptional performance in Piku to her memorable work in Goliyon ki Raasleela Ram Leela, Deepika has shown different shades of her versatility throughout her acting career. Apart from being a great actress, Deepika Padukone is also admired by millions for openly talking about mental health and never shying away from presenting her unfiltered opinions on complex topics.
It was on November 14, 2018, when Deepika Padukone got married to the love of her life and exceptionally-talented actor, Ranveer Singh, in Lake Como in Italy. However, not everyone is aware of the fact, almost a year ago before her marriage, Deepika publicly shared her desire to marry critically-acclaimed director, Sanjay Leela Bhansali. It was during her appearance in one of the episodes of Bigg Boss 11 when Salman asked Deepika to choose from Ranveer Singh, Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Shahid Kapoor for the following, marry, date and kill.
In response to Salman Khan’s tricky question, Deepika Padukone picked Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s name for marriage, Ranveer Singh, for the date, and admitted that Shahid Kapoor was married; hence she would like to choose him for the kill. The answer left the audience completely surprised, as everyone thought, she would pick Ranveer Singh’s name. However, it was Salman, who didn’t leave a chance to share his savage take on Deepika’s pick. The Bhaijaan said the marriage would not work, leaving everyone in splits with his brutal response.

Although none of them had ever accepted their dating reports, but media corridors were always filled with speculations about their broken engagement. Once in a rare interview with siasat.com in 2012, Sanjay Leela Bhansali opened up about his experience with love and why he never married. In response to the same, the filmmaker admitted that he had never fallen in love with someone. He explained that his growing age has nothing to do with his love life. As per his philosophy, love can happen at any age, and maybe it could happen in the latter stages of his life. He had explained:
"I love Bela's (Sanjay Leela Bhansali's sister, Bela Segal) concept of love striking two people who are seen as past the age of marriage. Love can strike at 45 or 85. I am 49, and I am still waiting for love to happen."
